Educational Presentations and Inservices

Are you a health-care professional? Or a member of a community group? I want to speak to your group!

My dynamic presentations involve participants in direct music experiences, with an educational component about the applications of music therapy in health-care and music experiences in day-to-day life.

Here are some topics to choose from:

  • Music Therapy for Older Adults: How it Works in Senior Living, Long-Term Care, and Hospice
  • Why Does Music Work? What We Know About Music Therapy as an Evidence-Based Practice
  • Music Soothes the Soul: How to Choose and Use Music for Relaxation
  • Your Voice as the Tool for Better Emotional and Physical Health
  • How to Sing, Shake, and Shimmy Your Way Into a Better Life
  • Music in Caregiving 101
  • Music for Self-Care: Because You’re Worth It

Presentations are tailored to meet the interests and educational needs of your group.
